Quick & Easy Mindful Chick’n Salad Sandwich
I know I’ve posted this Mindful Chick’n salad recipe on my Instagram before but, I wanted to share the full recipe and other ways I enjoy eating it.
Now first off all, my hubby went to 4 different stores before he found any in stock. So when our local grocery store has them available we try to load up. I’d like to believe more shoppers are choosing healthier plant-based alternatives as meat replacements because the beyond meat is also always out of stock as well.
This chick’n salad recipe also goes great with crackers and a must for hosting and entertaining. You can also meal prep this up for the week adding your favorite snacks on the side which is great for my hubby when he’s on the move and needs a grab-and-go healthy meal.
Mindful Chick’n by Sweet Earth Foods
is a plant-based, protein-rich chicken alternative that you can use to make delicious vegan meals. One of my favorites to make for lunch or for a light dinner is my scrumptious Mindful chick’n salad sandwich recipe. I add in a couple slices of avocado and a slice of violife cheddar cheese or Daiya provolone; throw some pretzel chips and grapes or apple slices on the side and I’m set for the rest of the day!
Mindful Chick’n Salad SandwichCourse: LunchCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
1 package of Mindful Chik’n chopped finely
1/3 cup organic, no sugar added raisins
1/2 cup of chopped green onions
1/2 – 1 tablespoon of Cajun spice (depends on your taste buds)

- In a skillet, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, Mindful Chick’n and Cajun spice on medium high. Cook until chick’n is lightly charred.

- Add a healthy size scoop of chick’n salad to your choice of bread. I like to use Dave’s Killer Bread 21 Whole Grains and Seeds, but feel free to use whatever bread you enjoy.
- Add your choice of vegan cheese, sliced avocado and pair it with your favorite food medley and it’s ready to eat! You can also dress it with a slice of tomato, pickles and lettuce. The possibilities are endless!
